A sunrise is always a stirring moment. Experiencing sunrise in the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Dolomites, where an extraordinary show of lights throws the limelight on spectacular rock towers, though, is nothing less than an unforgettable experience.
It's worth getting up early. It will be between 4am and 5.30am (depending on the time of sunrise) and drive together to the Passo Gardena (2121 m). From the pass you first hike north on a wide road in hairpin bends up towards the mountain station of the Dantercepies cable car. Continue upwards across alpine meadows to the scree gorge west of the Gran Cir peak. The marked path brings you to the beginning of the climb with steel protection (approx. 30 min.). Follow the rope belays along the ramp and continue, zigzagging upwards, up to the rock face and in pleasant climbing, to the summit cross (2592 m). From here we have a magnificent view of the mountain world of the Dolomites and the Val Gardena valley. Eagerly awaiting the first rays of sunlight that illuminate the valley, we marvel at this magnificent sunrise. Nature awakens. The first animals creep out of their hiding places; enjoy the silence of nature... "Listen to the Sound of Silence" and feel the sun's rays warming the face and feel those special moments of silence when the world stops and marvels at this unique natural spectacle....Enjoy it.
The descent is the same way as the ascent.
Feel the first rays of the day on your skin, pure tingling experience
THESE UNIQUE MOMENTS MUST BE ENJOYED
